Volunteers are the life blood of foodbanks. Your skills could be just what we need.
We’re in need of some van drivers + assistants to join our team – could you help us?
We’re looking for a few new teams of van drivers + assistants to help with collections and deliveries for Watford Foodbank one or two mornings a week.
You’ll need to have a valid drivers license and be comfortable driving our van, as well as physically able to lift and carry crates of food. You’ll be in a team of two people (one driver and one assistant) as there is quite a lot of food to move!
If you’re interested in getting involved, please pop Andrew an email on [email protected]
Volunteers are the driving force behind foodbanks. There are thousands of volunteers across the UK, helping The Trussell Trust Foodbank Network get emergency food to people in crisis. We want you to enjoy volunteering and there are lots of ways to get involved. Whatever role you choose, you will make a real difference to the life of someone in crisis.
Our warehouse team weigh, sort and store donated food before it’s made into parcels for clients to collect. You could help in this vital work to ensure we always have the right food available.
HELPING AT A FOODBANK CENTRE
Meet clients and give out food parcels. Have an informal chat with clients over a cup of tea, to discuss their situation and signpost to further support.
Are you free 10 am – 1 pm on one morning each week to help in our foodbank centre?
Contact us on [email protected] for more details and arrange a visit to the warehouse – we’d love to meet you!
Update: We currently have a full warehouse volunteer team and sadly aren’t able to increase the number of people in our warehouse due to the social distancing guidelines in place.
